Cheesy Chorizo Frittata Recipe: A Tasty Mexican-Style Frittata Recipe With Attitude by Donna John
Mexican chorizo is a pork sausage that's packed with spices – it's not shy! When you combine those flavors with mild eggs and creamy cheese, the result is really tasty. This easy chorizo frittata recipe is a keeper.
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 30 to 35 minutes
Total Time: 40 to 45 minutes
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 onion, chopped
- 1/2 cup chopped bell pepper (I used a red bell pepper)
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 pound Mexican chorizo
- 9 eggs
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives (optional)
- 2 cups shredded Oaxaca cheese
- toppings: sliced avocado, guacamole, chopped tomatoes, chopped red onion, cilantro, sour cream, salsa
Here's how to make it:
Heat the oil in a 10-inch ovenproof skillet. Add the onion and bell pepper. Cook until soft, about 3 to 4 minutes. Add the garlic and cook 30 seconds. Remove to a plate.
Cook the sausage until browned and cooked through, crumbling it as you stir. Drain the fat.
Put the vegetables back into the pan. Mix.
Crack the eggs into a bowl.
Add the cheddar cheese, cilantro and chives, if using. Season with salt and pepper.
Pour the egg mixture over the chorizo.
Top with the shredded Oaxaca cheese.
Bake in a preheated 350-degree F oven for about 20 to 25 minutes or until eggs are set.
Let the frittata sit for a few minutes before cutting. Top slices with desired toppings.
